Once you have recompiled your .tex file with the new settings, open  
the resulting .pdf in Adobe Acrobat and check the "Fonts" tab under  
File > Document Properties. Every font you used should be listed (and  
sometimes a few others that I don't know anything about), and after  
each font it should say "(Embedded Subset)".

In case you need a non-Adobe solution, you can get the same info on  
the command line with the help of the free "pdffonts" tool from the  
xpdf suite (http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/). There should be  
discussions in the list archives on how to compile/install these, but  
if you don't need the tools that rely on Motif, it's pretty straight
